“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.”― Tom Bodett
I spend my day moving in and amongst people.
people of all colors,
all hues of the rainbow,
newly born wee people,
some who are about to take their last breath,
others who will find the help they need
to heal their weary bodies..
lots and lots of people.
those who are happy,
Some whose eyes are tear laden,
weary worry filled bodies
I watch them.
they surprise you
in all kinds of ways...
some know how to push the button
that sets off the fuse on your very last nerve. ( I hate it when that happens--but it does every once in a blue moon or two)
I do love watching....
watching the movement of bodies through space...
accidental intertwining or
bringing together people
for some unknown reason
at a certain destination and time.
People teach me--all day--every day
something about life
I've noticed some of the happiest people
who have triumphed in spite of
the agony of defeat
without letting it
get them down
or tarnish their smile,
I love these brief passing encounters
throughout the day
I get little tiny glimmers
through hidden lenses
what makes people happy
you know what I've seen through my
staring and watching
of others stories.
it comes in waves,
not because of some luxury item,
in tiny brief moments
half-full glass gets filled to the brim and overflows out to others.
I am thankful
all the teachers I encountered today,
all kinds of people,
bumping into each other,
a weird kind of way that can't be seen with the naked eye.
for glimmers of true happiness,
for moments of deep undying love
...hope that a cure will come...
that the kid won't die...
that miracles can and will happen
for moments when
the world is more positive
May each of you
find a moment
mixes with love
while seated on
rise up to meet you!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
Blessings and Hugs!
